That's fog and freezing rain beyond the windows...Christmas lights are so cheering on such days.
Earlier in the week, my daughter and I went Christmas shopping in Freeport and Augusta. It was another freezing rain and fog day, but she was up for driving saying that no one would be crazy enough to be out. She was very nearly right. In fact, we had the dining room all to ourselves at Olive Garden.
The difference between not explaining what you're up to and assuring your
victim darling that you are a blogger after all.
The waitress did not leave us tongs so we had to improvise. I had no idea how fast Darling Daughter's hands were moving, but she hadn't eaten all day.
This is the L.L. Bean tree — a spruce. I think it looks quite lovely even in fog and rain. Yes, there are orbs in the trees.
This was the row of lights and wreaths outside the Home Store part of L.L. Bean. Love those galvanized buckets!

One of Freeport's side streets...I just liked the hip-roofed brick building with the wreaths at all windows.
A wonderful carving of three black bears in a tree trunk on The Green.
It was a fun day and I did get some Christmas shopping done. My daughter was very patient with her old mum who was barely toddering by day's end. She said that she didn't get as much done as she had hoped. Of course not! That's what you get when you take an old lady shopping, but may the good deed be returned in multiple ways. ☺
